Know about the different types of Wigs

Our work of art is 100% purely handmade braided by many of us. We hand craft different braided hairstyles you see on the human head, right on a full lace braided wig.

There is a wide variety of African American braided wigs on the market. Wigs exist in all cuts: SHORT BRAIDED WIGS, medium or long, and in different natures, in particular smooth or curly. On the technical side, wigs differ according to the method of manufacture and the material from which they are made.

Natural or Synthetic?

Wigs for black women are available in natural and synthetic hair. Natural wigs are made from human hair. While synthetic wigs are made from synthetic fibers.

The difference is most often visible to the naked eye. However, we currently encounter synthetic fibers that resemble real hair, both visually and to the touch.

The difference lies mainly in the prices. Synthetic KNOTLESS BRAID WIG costs less than wigs with natural hair. You can treat natural wigs like real hair. In particular, you can color them or pass them to heat devices (straightener, diffuser, brushing, etc.).

On the other hand, synthetic wigs are neither iron nor dye. Natural wigs thus require identical maintenance to original hair and daily styling. And they are noticeably heavier than synthetic models. Depending on the manufacturing method, we find different designs of wigs on the market.

Remy Hair natural hair wigs:

Please note that Remy Hair is not a brand of hair extension. It designates a quality standard. The hair is said to be Remy when all the hair is all oriented in the same direction, from root to tip.

Lace front wigs:

Also known as Invisible Wigs or Lace Front Wigs - They are made using a sophisticated technique that sets them apart from conventional wigs. Lace front wigs are modern wigs that increasingly compete with weaves. The big stars of the United States like Beyonce and Rihanna have now opted for the Lace Wig, at the expense of weaving.

Full lace wigs:

Full lace wigs are also imperceptible lace wigs. We say “full lace” when the lace completely surrounds the cup, from front to back. Full lace covers the forehead, from one ear to the other, as well as the back of the neck. Unlike lace fronts, full lace wigs allow you to wear your hair high and in a ponytail. It is also possible for you to style your hair in a bun. Full lace wigs are available with or without elastics.

Monofilament wigs:

Monofilament wigs are fashionable wigs of very high quality. The monofilament BRAIDED WIGS are a kind of undetectable medical wig. It offers extreme comfort and gives a 100% natural appearance. The montage also mimics the scalp. The hair is implanted individually and manually on a thin membrane imitating the scalp. You can style your monofilament wig as you wish.
